Delegates will also learn about and tour the Wabash Building, a 420,000 square foot, mixed-use “Vertical University” on Roosevelt University’s Chicago campus. The 32-story LEED Gold certified facility includes a street-level retail student bookstore, six floors of student services and student life facilities, seven floors of classrooms, science laboratories and academic offices, and 615 beds for freshmen and sophomore housing. Not only does the building complement and enhance the surrounding landmark structures, but it also embodies the university’s commitment to social justice and civic engagement.
The conference agenda also includes many opportunities for delegates to connect directly with both business partners and colleagues, including a business partner appreciation dinner followed by a gala event on the Chicago River. The three-hour dessert cruise on the luxury cruise vessel Chicago’s First Lady also features fireworks and commentary about the iconic Chicago skyline.
